I have a single IIS 8 website bound to an IP address. I can access the site by using the host name (e.g. www.________.com) but not by IP address or localhost. I checked the bindings and made sure that I had a binding without any host name filled in:

Yet, accessing by IP or localhost returns a 404 page not found error.
